Introducing the GRS Super Joystick IKARI WARRIORS EDITION

Ever since the golden era of arcades, iconic games like the SNK Ikari Warriors series, Data East Midnight Resistance, SNK T.N.K III, and Taito Front Line Arcade have captured the imagination of players in the 1980s. Especially memorable is the legendary Ikari Warriors, a game that holds a nostalgic place in the hearts of countless gamers. Until now, it was challenging to fully recapture the magic of the original rotary joystick gameplay. But today, at Glen's Retro Show and Thunderstick Studio, we're changing that.



We're beyond excited to present the GRS Super Joystick, a product of our dedication to rekindling those precious gaming memories. In a monumental leap, we've collaborated with SNK and secured the official license of Ikari Warriors, integrating it as a key feature of our product. But that's not all. We've brought the experience full circle, creating an exclusive limited-edition package that isn't just a joystick but a piece of gaming history. 

When you unbox the GRS Super Joystick, you'll be met with the iconic Ikari Warriors imagery adorning our unique packaging. It's not just about aesthetics. Our team has innovated the packaging to include a control panel-shaped rig box with pre-drilled holes. Users can easily pop off these holes to assemble the high-quality arcade buttons and the GRS Super Joystick onto the rig box, transforming the packaging into a fully functional control panel. That's right. Your packaging becomes part of your gaming experience, complete with licensed artwork from the Ikari Warriors arcade cabinet, ready for use with iconic arcade games requiring rotary functions.



This limited-edition GRS Super Joystick Ikari Warriors edition aims to recreate and enhance the original gaming experience. It incorporates state-of-the-art technology like Hall Sensors, Hybrid USB Protocols, and Software-Defined Joystick Control Key Values. The joystick is designed to be user-friendly, requiring no technical knowledge, and offers a plug-and-play solution suitable for both veteran gamers and newcomers.

Great joystick from a great company

I ordered this joystick for my husband for Father's Day. He'd been wanting a joystick like this one for a while. My first package came damaged, but Thunderstick Studio made it right and my husband loved his gift. He began putting it together right away, and so far so good with the gameplay. I'll definitely come back for other gifts in the future. Thank you!!

It’s what you want

The stick has performed everything that I’ve asked it to. It was quite easy to set up. I even decided to buy more double buttons to expand my case because of the quality. I haven’t even dived into the more expanded features that the stick allows it still a great product. quality product for people who really care.

GRS Super Joystick | Ikari Warriors Limited Edition (US ver)

The joystick works on MAME and you can use the rotating top part after a few adjustments, to play paddle based games like, Breakout and Super Breakout from Atari.
However, you may need to be mindful of the fact that the joystick tilts when trying to play these kind of games when in free spin mode. It will need some getting used to. But the free spinning knob on the Super Joystick works fine as a paddle controller.
Since I was new to these USB type of Joysticks, I needed to learn a little more on how to use it on Steam. But the people at Thunderstick Studios were kind enough to help me out when I reached out to them. So, I really like to thank them for their help and patience setting me on the right direction.
Though it may take a bit of learning for some to use this joystick, it works really well once one gets the hang of it.
Overall, I'm glad with my purchase of the GRS Super Joystick from Thunderstick Studios.

This stick is not only so smooth and feels good. The ability for me to play one of my most beloved childhood arcade games, is beyond pure joy.

Realy enjoyed the fun of building the controler in the provided enclosure.

Only wish would be to have auto gate switching.

GRS does make some realy great products. Hope to add more. Packaging is just next level.

Not many companies care that much. From product to Packaging.

Excellent product at a great price. It took me about 2 hours to assemble, figure out the correct top and to set the light to purple to play the ikari warriors games on steam. I now see the possibilities for using these parts in another enclosure if I so choose.
